The Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers aim for their eighth straight win against the Central-leading Dallas Stars, with both teams coming off strong performances and the game featuring high stakes and top players like Artemi Panarin and Jason Robertson.

Tonight’s the night. The Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers are on the hunt for their eighth win in a row. They’re facing off against the Dallas Stars, the top dogs of the Central, this Tuesday.

The Rangers? They’ve been on fire. After a bit of a rough patch (3-6-2), they’ve turned things around with a winning streak. And boy, did they keep us on the edge of our seats with a 6-5 overtime win against the Islanders on Sunday.

Dallas, on the other hand, is licking its wounds after a 4-3 shootout loss to Boston on Monday. But don’t count them out. They’ve been pretty consistent, snagging at least a point in 11 of their last 12 games.

Remember November? The Stars dominated with a 6-3 victory at home. But tonight, it’s a whole new ball game. The puck drops at 7 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are the favorites, but anything can happen.
